Best-in-class educational package features interactive games, books, videos.

Benefits from early childhood use of quality educational apps on tablets are highlighted in several studies, providing a strong foundation for launch of the GizmoTab. The new tablet arrives at Verizon stores and online Dec. 1 and is available with 300 premium learning apps from brands and characters embraced by children, including Paddington Bear, Thomas and Friends, Sesame Street, Garfield, and Crayola. The app content is handpicked by language, math, and science experts to entertain and instruct kids 3-8. The learning package on the full-featured GizmoTab is valued at $600.

GizmoTab is a next-gen kids tablet built from the inside out with fun and quality learning in mind. The app library on GizmoTab helps parents ensure quality screen time and the ability to measure and tailor the child’s progress and set appropriate time limits. Customers activating a GizmoTab on the Verizon 4G LTE network receive unlimited access to the 300 premium apps wherever life takes their family.
Parents seeking quality learning experiences for kids are barraged by more than 100,000 apps labeled “educational;” a huge challenge. Verizon and its content partner, Fingerprint, have carefully selected apps for their ability to engage, educate and entertain young kids. Fingerprint is the leading provider of digital content for kids and families.
